Nurses’ Plegde

Our Plegde

“In the full knowledge of the obligation I am undertaking. I promise to care for the sick with all the skills and understanding I possess, without regard to race, creed, colour, politics and social status, sparring no effort to conserve life, to alleviate suffering and promote health.
“I will respect at all times the dignity and religious beliefs of the patients under my care, holding in confidence all personal information entrusted to me and refraining from any action which endangers life or health”
I will endeavour to keep my professional knowledge and skill at the highest level to give loyal support and cooperation to all members of the health care team. I will do my utmost to honour and uphold the integrity of the nurse.
